A roof is a complex system of small components that shield your home from the elements. Perhaps you just need a minimal roof repair to set things straight, and it would be more cost-effective to leave the rest of the roof untouched. What you need, is a competent and professional roofer to come out and inspect your roof, Cook Roofing can perform a thorough roof inspection and tell you what can be salvaged and what needs to be repaired or replaced. We will ensure that the repairs that need to be made will be done, without compromising the rest of your roof if it can be done.

But even though insurance pays out and you kicked a few bucks your way, you want to make sure the damage is correctly fixed. If there is an insurance claim, they owe it to be patched properly, not just a repair job.

If the repair can be made without compromising the roof system, then we’ll be able to tell.

Missing Shingles Caused by Wind Damage

You wake up in the morning to go walk the dog, and there are shingles on your front lawn. Now what do you do? Well, sometimes on a newer roof, it’s possible to lift the shingles above the damaged ones up. They then remove the rest of the shingle (more than 50% of the damaged shingle is still underneath the one above it), try not to damage the underlayment (felt), nail a new shingle in, and try to keep from tearing other shingles. However, sometimes the shingles are worn and frail, and the others don’t pull aside easily, and tear and break apart. The plywood decking could be rotting and waterlogged and even delaminate as a result. There could even be so many shingles torn off or damaged that a simple repair won't cut it, and the whole roof will have to be replaced in some cases. A good roofing company would be unlikely to guarantee your roof won’t leak if they just make your roof look like a patchwork quilt. In many cases, insurance will buy these roofs after another inspection on them.

Missing Shingles from Wind Damage

Maybe the wind blew a few shingle tabs off. Sometimes, on a newer roof, it’s possible to lift the shingles above the damaged ones up. They then remove the rest of the shingle (more than 50% of the damaged shingle is still underneath the one above it), try not to damage the underlayment (felt), nail a new shingle in, and try to keep from tearing other shingles.

Often, though, the shingles are old and worn, the other shingles don’t pull aside easily and instead they tear or break, etc. And if water was getting in, the plywood decking may be waterlogged or even starting to delaminate and rot. It may be that other shingles were blown loose also, to the point that there would be too many shingles to replace.

A good roofing company would be unlikely to guarantee your roof won’t leak if they just turn your roof into a patchwork of repairs. In many cases, insurance will buy these roofs after a second inspection. Cook Roofing Company backs our work with a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty. If we can repair it and stand behind it, we will. If we can't, we'll explain why and if applicable, help you get it covered by insurance. Call for a free estimate today

FAQ

How do you repair a leaking flat roof?
After finding the source of the leak (look for cracks in seams, puncture marks, flashing areas), you can use roofing cement or sealant to seal up the leak. Generally a membrane patch is applied over this, and sealed around the edges of the patch according to the instructions for the specific type of patch and roofing material. Be aware that a leak may have saturated insulation and decking underneath the roof membrane, and if that is not vented, you can end up with serious long term problems leading to the need to completely replace the whole roof, including risk of collapse in extreme situations. There are thermal imaging tools that better roofing companies can use to find these kinds of wet situations.
Where do roofs tend to leak from?
The main source of roof leaks is where the roofing material is up against a wall, pipe, vent, or at the rake or eave edges. If the flashing is not installed correctly, these areas are prone to leaking. The leaks might not be visible or apparent for years, and by that time, there could be extensive damage. Roof installation is where you definitely get what you pay for, so make sure you use a quality roofer with a good labor warranty - preferably lifetime.
How do you stop a leaking roof?
It depends on where your roof is leaking from. The most common locations are at the edges of the roofing material, especially against side and end walls, pipes and vents, skylights, and chimneys. Water tends to run down structural areas in the attic so go uphill on the roof from where the leak inside is. Look for cracks, popped nails, missing shingles, places where the roof edges meet walls or vents, etc. There are sealants and tapes that can be used for temporary fixes, but problem areas should really be re-worked. Caulking and roof cement tends to crack over time and allow more water through.
